Putnam County—Thursday morning at 7:45, an Indiana State Police Trooper was working along Interstate 70. The Trooper observed a black Chevy Cruze traveling eastbound near the 36 mile marker with the registration improperly displayed. A traffic stop was initiated and during the stop several indicators of possible criminal activity were detected.
A request for K-9 assistance was answered by an Indiana State Police K-9 handler. A free air sniff resulted in a “positive indication” on the back passenger side of the vehicle. A subsequent search yielded one package estimated to be a Kilo of suspected Cocaine. Estimated street value of a Kilo of cocaine is approximately $100,000 dollars.
